Yearn to Wander
Herring Spawn in Strait of Georgia
The herring spawn in the Strait of Georgia is one of the spectacular natural events during late winter. It's crucial for the survival of some fishermen and wildlife. Fishermen await the opening with hope of catching enough to make their annual income; local and migrating birds, especially the Brant, and sea mammals, await a feeding frenzy; local residents and tourists await the excitement of watching the increased activity of fishing boats and wildlife. The anticipation seemed almost euphoric.
French Creek's Kingfisher et al
Watching a Belted Kingfisher's fishing ritual was a treat...and so was watching other harbour and estuary activity.
Rosewell Creek Provincial Park is a small mid-island provincial park that protects Rosewell Creek, where Coho Salmon spawn in the fall, and the surrounding mature forest of cedars, hemlocks and maples.
Ship's Point Wanderings
Like anywhere near the sea here, something interesting pops up.
A cold, but bright sunny day made for brisk walking through sea-front parks in Victoria and more interesting bird sightings.
